iPhone Lineup in 2019 Could Have a Smaller Notch as Apple Looks for a Unique Way to Give the User ‘More Screen’
The iPhone X and its notch were liked by some, hated by others but it packed a dense amount of technology, one that featured a 3D sensing module that allowed the device to replace Touch ID with Face ID. For the 2019 iPhone, things are going to be slightly different than its predecessors. For one thing, we should expect a smaller notch and it will be thanks to the unique way that Apple will intend to merge two technologies so that users have ‘more screen’ to play around with.
New rumor Claims Apple Is Exploring Options of Combining Front-Facing Camera and Face ID Tech to Reduce Notch Size on the 2019 iPhone Family
According to ETNews and citing industry sources, Apple appears to be looking into matters where it will be able to combine the front-facing camera and Face ID on next year’s iPhones. If the move goes according to plan, then it will significantly reduce the size of the TrueDepth sensor housing, resulting in a sizable difference between the iPhone X notch and the 2019 iPhone notch.
The report does mention that there is a possibility that the next-gen iPhones are going to be using a singular face recognition module. To remind you, Face ID is powered by an infrared camera, dot projector, and flood illuminator so combining so much technology into a compact form factor just to reduce the notch is going to be a bit of a challenge for the tech giant.
We obviously want you to take this information with a pinch of salt, because we have yet to gaze through any potential visual image leak of the 2018 iPhone family. If we are able to provide you guys with some concrete info that this year’s iPhone lineup will feature a notch that will possess a significantly reduced size, then we definitely have high hopes for the series of devices that are going to be dropping in next year.
